COVID-19 Update: With many other food access points now closed, the need for our markets to supply fresh, healthy food is even greater. To meet the growing need in the safest way possible Grow NYC has issued new safety protocols. Please visit the Grow NYC website for more info: www.grownyc.org​

Nestled inside Prospect Park's tree-shaded southwest corner, this much-loved market, occurring every Sunday and Wednesday, is where South Slope and Windsor Terrace residents stock up on locally grown staples. The offerings range from a selection of vegetables, fruits, baked goods, plants, and flowers, to fresh-caught fish and organic baked goods. For a full calendar of events and a list of sellers, visit the GrowNYC website.

This Greenmarket at Bartel-Pritchard Square is also open on Sundays, 9 am–3 pm, May 5 through December 22.
